    Acclaimed author Michael J. Sullivan created instant best sellers with his spellbinding Riyria Revelations series. This first volume introduces Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater, two enterprising thieves who end up running for their lives when they’re framed for the death of the king. Trapped in a conspiracy bigger than they can imagine, their only hope is unraveling an ancient mystery - before it’s too late.

    I gave this book 5 stars but it was not the best one I have read. Still, since I had good time listening to it, I think it deserves 5 stars.
    Easy to follow story line, small and interesting plot twists, and two awesome characters.
    It is NOT epic fantasy comparing with some other books, nor it is high fantasy. I would call it something between low fantasy, almost epic fantasy and regular fantasy.
    Worth trying out.

    When a high-ranking officer gallops into the quiet Mistyvales, he brings a warning that shakes the countryfolk to their roots. But for Aedan, a scruffy young adventurer with veins full of fire and a head full of ideas, this officer is not what he seems. The events that follow propel Aedan on a journey that only the foolhardy or desperate would risk, leading him to the gates of the nation's royal academy - a whole world of secrets in itself. But this is only the beginning of his discoveries.

    Story

    Thus story is for every nerd, computer scientist and fantasy with wizards lover. Good pace and well narrated. I would say that plot is quite simple but since its mostly comedy, i do not mind. Loved it even being quite short :)

    All series fall to place. I loved it. Twist at the end, main story, performance, characters. I was not able to guess how it will end.
